    Wealth Is No Longer Honored Because, Of How It's Been Gotten By Most

    This is put into BabyBoomer Year's, I think we destroyed "Honoring People That Did Good Financially". Read on why I say that and, think alittle about the world we now live in.

    150 year's ago (Great GrandParent's Era), you had to work hard and fight to keep it. You taught your kid's to work hard everyday but, to be good to everybody if given a chance to be. If you were lucky, you kept it.

    100 year's ago (GrandParent's Era), you had to work from your whole life. You taught your kid's that, they had to work hard and have some education. You took advantage of some to get wealth, that was the code of the day.

    50 year's ago (Our Parent's Era), you could still be wealthy by working your whole life from sunup to sundown. The kid's were taught to work hard at whatever you had to do and, go to school and learn more. Everybody had a chance to prosper and, many did.

    Presently (BabyBoomer's And Their Kid's) today it's not about really working your whole life, it's turned into "Only The Strong Survive Mentality". You are told you don't have to work hard, just go to school and be smart enough to take advantage in every situation you can, You don't have to gain wealth by being honorable and working for it, you do whatever it takes. It doesn't matter how many you destroy or what you do to get it, just get it.
    Now the Future (BabyBoomer Grandkid's) are being taught to be more ruthless, you don't have to listen to your elder's. After all, your now smarter than they are. It doesn't matter how you win, nobody cares about anybody anymore.

    This is what I've seen in different age group's, it's not going to end good for anybody. Nobody has any feeling's about other's anymore, everybodies numb. Kid's are being taught to not listen to reasoning, don't honor anybody, everybody owes you now, etc.. Is this what everybody want's to see happen, is this what life is going to turn into in the whole world ????? Now tell me you haven't seen this same thing in your families and, on the "MainStreet/WallStreet Curcuit's" ?????
    God Bless.

      • OFF TOPIC-

        Regarding the unemployment rate which has basically been ignored-(stock market related)for years-ie 1+1=2, employment, housing etal.Why doesn't this administration offer 1/2 the Social security pymt of a 70 yr, full retiree to the unemployed 55 and over and graduate the entittlement to a full 62 year rate at a later date and offer 3/4 of the 70 year rate at full retirement at 70. This would lessen the competition for jobs for the already unemployed and take the harness off the states. The funds are already guaranteed for those 55 and over and the actuaries could figure out a more precise formula that would put CITIZENS EARNED CONTRIBUTIONS back into society. Less would be asking for food stamps and other programs. Both States and employers would not have to pay the greater payroll increase on wages due to the high number of claimants and those 70 million people would be guaranteed monies to live on till they found a job or just dropped out. Its THEIR MONEY CONTRIBUTED.
        Someone should be able to devise a workable solution without squeezing the entitlement program. It would help WITHOUT ADDING DEBT.

      Every Man/Woman/Child know's this sad commentary, it's the truth. Nobody want's to comment because, that's the way they/family/friend's are. Nobody want's to admit their part of this crap, that's a problem. God Bless.

      It's a problem when nobody look's at what the result's to society is, Government/Other Agencies should all backoff to let Families/Society change this problem !!!!! If everybody doesn't start to readdress this issue, the world street's will just get more violent. Nobody will be safe anywhere, this is a growing problem around the world. God Bless.

      Wealthy have finally realized this, that's why they try to own so many asset's in so many countries. They know that wealth with the younger generation's that have no moral's or feeling's for other's, limit's their families safety everywhere in the world. But they think they will find that safety somewhere, their rich so, somebody will give them safety !!!!! God Bless.
